    It's not Judgment, it's enlightenment. Trying to save the unregenerate is the work of God's people.

But if you do warn the wicked person to turn from their ways and they do not do so, they will die for their sin, though you yourself will be saved." - Ezekiel 33

    Sam always said he wanted to be seen as a football player, not as a gay football player...

    So why isn't this in sportstalk?

    I have no interest whatsoever in looking up your version of fiction.
    So you quote a secular rag about godly wisdom. LOL. That's why you're lost.

    Dear lord, grant me the patience not to say what I am truly thinking to this fanatical religious right wing extremist.

    How's that?

    Congrats on him being drafted. Being gay, Christian, straight, Muslim or whatever else shouldn't be a qualifier or disqualifier.

    I also don't look to the NFL for moral support or trying to validate things...

    What if that isn't true? What if that is nothing but a book written by people thousands of years ago? What if God is actually disappointed in you for treating your fellow human beings with such contempt?

    There is nothing wrong with being a part of the LGBT spectrum, and any religion that would say otherwise is wrong.

    Webster's Dictionary is a rag? Let me guess? Left wing propaganda is it?

    It says in "the year of OUR LORD." And that would be Jesus.

    Here's something else you can wolf down for enlightenment on the subject. I seriously doubt any of you have ever studied the subject.

    And what if you're wrong and many are deceived into thinking it's ok only to live a life trapped in sin and then being judged for it?

    The Bible clearly says that having homosexual sex is a sin and in the past the death penalty was applied to homosexual sex when God was aggressively purging sin from the camp to prepare the Israelites to inherit the promise land, it's simply not acceptable as a moral practice or tenant in holy living and is a form of sexual sin like adultery. If the Bible is the Word of God then that means homosexuals that have sex are living in sin, and as such they will be judged for it unless they repent.

    What makes you claim that every religion that says otherwise is wrong? What authority or scripture do you base that off of?
